Book DescriptionExpatriate Games describes the expatriate experience through the eyes of a culture-shocked young mother, as well as through the words and experiences of a cast of other young mothers who struggled to maintain some sense of identity while coping with the changes wrought by their husbands careers. When faced with her husband's job transfer to Orsay, France, the author struggled with learning a strange language, and navigating in unfamiliar surroundings, while trying to make a home for herfamily amid the puzzling characteristics of a different culture. The challenges did not confine themselves to France. Back in Michigan, the family's home and finances were damaged due to a misplaced trust in a disreputable property manager, a situation that threatened to plunge the family into financial ruin.
